    Default if you had to pick a different quadra to be in

    If you had to pick a different quadra to be in, which would you choose? Answer based on which you'd most want to be, not which you would be if you weren't in the one you're in. If you don't know your quadra, put your two top choices.

    Delta Quadra because I was rather born as an ISTP, got into the army and lived a life like rambo.

    i don't understand how anyone could possibly go about answering this question. what quadra would you "want" to be in if you weren't in your own quadra?

    wtf?

    Which quadra, besides your own, do you find the most appealing and enjoy being a part of? It seems like a simple question to me, and it's not like enjoying the company of other specific quadras is inconceivable.

    That's not what I meant though. I meant "if you would have been a different type instead of the one you are, which quadra would you want to be in (besides your own)?" It's pretty much about imagining that you're someone from another quadra and deciding which is most tolerable.

    "It's pretty much about imagining that you're someone from another quadra and deciding which is most tolerable."

    My alpha mindset tells me that which is tolerable is that which is "the most enjoyable," I guess.

    Delta probably the least (at the moment). Too down to earth and serious and judging and all that. I'd say Beta or Gamma first. Nothing specific against Alpha it just seems a bit light weight. Beta pwns and Gamma owns.

    Alpha, which I thought I was for awhile.
    whenever the dog and i see each other we both stop where we are. we regard each other with a mixture of sadness and suspicion and then we feign indifference.

    Beta. I could see the fun in being an 'evil' ESTp in a later life. You know, doing all that rowdy stuff and NOT instinctively caring that it bothers people...

    I dunno, I think I'm pretty much where it's at I'm a bit split between the other three...I'd love to be able to get the kind of enjoyment and reward from doing community-minded and socially responsible things that I see Deltas, like my family, doing, and Gammas seem to have the most security/stability in terms of generally taking care of life, but with my current mindset, I'd have to say that I prefer Beta.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I'd love to have the disregard for comfort and the mind for business of the LIE. Gamma.

    That's probably because while Alpha shares nothing with you, you believe the Te/Fi connection with Delta to be more important than the Se/Ni one with Beta. Hence, you prefer Delta. Nonetheless, I think all LIEs are pretty much glad to be who they are.

    interesting question....i'd have to say beta. i know so many of them, i'm used to them, they can deal with me, too. not delta....too much supervision and conservatism....and gamma feels like a foreign land which even thought it would be interesting to go to, i wouldn't feel comfortable there permanently.

    ILE

    those who are easily shocked.....should be shocked more often
